Spiritual Life in Middle School

Students during a bible study in the Chapel at St. Croix LutheranThe scripture and teachings of Jesus are at the center of the St. Croix learning experience. Every day begins with reflections on God’s Word. Monday through Friday, students participate in Bible classes, and three times a week students attend chapel devotions in St. Croix’s beautifully appointed space.

As a Christian school, we take great care in providing a faith-based education that is Christ-centered. We understand that the middle school years are a time of incredible growth and that each student is grappling with different issues and circumstances. St. Croix provides a supportive community where students can grow in their faith.
